The Kitchen Sisters are looking for stories and images and videos and writings. We're launching a new multimedia series on NPR this January, a listener collaboration in the tradition of Hidden Kitchens, Lost & Found Sound, and The Sonic Memorial Project. This one's about girls. Girls and the women they become. Stories of coming of age, rituals and rites of passage, secret identities. Of women who crossed a line, broke a trail, changed the tide. Small everyday stories, dramatic life and death stories. Stories from the middle of the city, to the middle of nowhere.
What women should we know about? What girl's story should we tell? The famous, the infamous, the unknown, the untold. Women with public lives. Women with secret lives.
Call our NPR Storyline at 202-408-9576 and tell us your story, or the story of someone we need to chronicle. Or email us at email@example.com
As for the contest, if you submit the winning name for the upcoming NPR series, you'll get called out on the Sisters' Web site, score the full line of Kitchen Sisters products and productions, and an invitation to a wild boar dinner with forager Angelo Garro, the guy Michael Pollan made famous in The Omnivore's Dilemma. And the thrill of hearing NPR guy Steve Inskeep pronounce it on air. Over and over again.
